If you're talking value to performance sweet spot, I say the Rift S.

If you're asking which is simply the top headset, that would be the Valve Index.

This does a good breakdown of the supported headsets for HL:A.

Whatever I just canceled my Valve Index VR order... already feeling less salty about being pushed to 9+ weeks after such a long wait time and with no info either. If Valve doesn't want 1000€ I am sure someone else will take it and give me what I WANT. Something to do while being stuck for months in an apartment for example.... blegh
Understandable, things could be a whole helluva lot worse. See the comments in today’s ootb.

Just got to the mancubus, and yes, yes, yes! Why did they do that? It ends the pants-staining "oh my god, I'm not equipped for that!"

Is there a way to disable the tutorials and monster flashing? You could in the 2016 game, which I did from the get-go. It was easy enough to tell a monster was glory-killable based on their drunken stupor animation. No need to have them light up like a Christmas tree. If there's demon weak spots I'd rather work out what those are on my own, like you're saying.

How about not selling something that can't be bought for 3+ months?

Yeah, I told my local grocery stores to close because they can't keep the TP stocked.

Why are you blaming Valve for this blowing up the VR market? Everyone else is out of stock too.

What makes more sense? They hold the game back till there's more VR headsets in stock, or they release the game and people get their headsets as soon as is possible?

Also, did you keep your back fill order from months ago, because they've had restocks since. They just tend to sell back out in a day.

Jesus... I once played Half-Life 2 and my dog barked all night. I'm boycotting Valve!

It'll get high Preys around here if so.

Yeah, Oculus was late to the game with VR controllers. Thus even after their release you had owners who didn't buy them as addons, but most people have moved up to owning controllers as well at this point.

Why do people think if you're using VR controllers you can't also be seated..? If you have enough room to start a game, roll your chair back about 2 extra feet from the desk, and don't mind playing seated you can play any VR game I know of.

And yes there are VR games that work with M&KB. Those are generally all games that have 2D modes as well. If the game is designed for VR Controllers only, your experience will be a tremendous notch up in to what the VR experience can offer. You'll be interacting with things in a way impossible to accomplish otherwise. Like actually aiming and drawing your bow in Skyrim VR, or "John Wick"'ing your guns through HL:A.

A lot of people who have barely played any good VR games are so negative about this being in VR.

If it can do what HL & HL2 did for the FPS so many years ago for VR... then it's going to be incredible, because VR when done right is mindblowing. Hope it lives up to it - I did hear that the campaign is about 15-16 hours - so that's something, all the flat/2D video footage I've seen looks great.

Always been a 3D (cyan / red, shutter glases, etc) fan. I remember playing HL1 with both types and being amazed. It felt so much like I was in the world and everything seemed so much bigger.

Now... with Alyx... I am gonna be in there more so. I am stoked.

Same! NV has had 3D support in their drivers for a longer time than people may know. Back in the early days it worked with OpenGL and 3-rd party shutter glasses. I remember playing the original Alice, Quake even Everquest in stereo. As for Half-Life - Shooting down an Osprey directly above my head and seeing the debri crash down all around me in 3D literally left me stunned.

I dunno, unless you feel all the platforming still defines this Doom as Doom on Roids, if you maybe know what I'm trying to say. Doom never had this level of platforming or metroidvania (though simple) exploration with said platforming. It's like both styles of games, on roids. Still pretty early in the game, but have come across the Super Mario Bros circular rotating fireball things. So that's a thing too lol.

So you're saying it's Doom on (Met)Roid's....?

Yeah, not sure why games like this are still being made. I mean, I do respect id software for their contributions over the years, but really, who are they catering towards, 60+ year olds who can't tolerate change?

Beaver's rather particular about his games.He prefers a version of one where throwing a grenade while moving forward is the equivalent of an Olynpian picking up the Olympic torch and running with it for about 12 yards before finally tossing it at a bunch of people already pointing guns at him vs it's follow up that's been refined in nearly every aspect.
Your arrogance doesnt do you well.
I dont see much refinement. You talking about those upgrades? A few different weapons? Your Fortress of Easter Egg Storage? Nah, thats not much. As I said, feels more like maybe a pack of DLCs.
You must mean the jump and run stuff then. That really has been refined. I mean the last one had a touch of it too already, but this is just extremely... "refined".

I'm not trying to be as serious as that. At least you play ArmA.. but I've put countless hours into each iteration and I just can't fathom how anyone would prefer 2 over 3. And yeah, it's refined., Everything feels so much smoother and responsive. ArmA II just felt janky, but not nearly as bad as ArmA 1.

Anyways.. go, Doom!

This game is the product of if Doom 2016 and Metroid Prime had a baby. It feels so much like Metroid Prime (with gore and splosions). I'm fine with that, I'm sure many won't be.

So you're saying it's Doom on 'Roids?

HTC keeps coming out with “almost, but quite right” VR kits. If this had lighthouse tracking and controllers like the regular Cosmos, maybe it’d be a decent alternative to the Index. Unfortunately, all reviews point to that being a big no.

I am STUPID excited for Alyx’s release, especially after seeing the “not up to in-game quality” environments. No, they don’t look as good as a current AAA shooter, but they look WAY better than most VR titles, and definitely good enough for people to watch streams and not say it looks outdated.

I love the Russel's Lab environment. A few visual easter eggs in that one (hands blown off the mannequin, etc).

Samsung Odyssey Plus is less than $300 right now. It's pretty much the best WMR headset: Good tracking, good controllers, dual 1440x1600 AMOLED displays with 110 degrees of view.

Review of it with HL:A starts at 28:00.
